Kolkata: Union Home Minister P Chidambaram on Monday declined to comment on the possibility of DMK pulling
out of the UPA government in the aftermath of the second
charge sheet filed by the CBI in the 2G spectrum scam.

"I would not like to comment on presumptions," Chidambaram
told reporters here before the CBI named M Karunanidhi`s
daughter and MP Kanimozhi as accused in the charge sheet.
The Home Minister was asked whether the DMK would quit the
union cabinet if Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi`s
family members were named by CBI in the 2G spectrum allocation
scam.
In Chennai, Karunanidhi also evaded questions about DMK
planning to quit the union cabinet if his family members were
named in the charge sheet.
